A New York man was arraigned Wednesday after admitting to police three killings of women, two of which occurring nearly 20 years ago, Dominique Debucquoy-Dodley reported.
Mount Vernon, NY resident Lucius Crawford, 60, told the NYPD to alert Long Island officials of his confession as they were searching for a suspect in the murders of 10 women whose bodies have been discovered in recent years. Crawford was taken into custody after police discovered the body of Tanya Simmons, 41, in his apartment.
Crawford was not home at the time of their discovery.
"We're glad to have this man off the streets," a Mount Vernon police officer said. "He's harmed so many people over the years, and now it's finally over."
